Thermarest Mattress Pads - Standard Series


Thermarest Mattress Pads - Large Base Camp

I know you see the guys on Westerns throw down a saddle and a blanket and blissfully doze off. Don't buy that myth. If you try to save a few bucks and plan to just sleep directly on the tent floor, you'll be in for one miserable night. Our mattress pads are just the solution to keep the bumps out of your back and the chills off your spine.

When considering a mattress pad, it's not just the comfort, but the insulation factor. Don't believe it? Slide a little bit off the mat some chilly night and the cold ground will wake you up faster than a 65-year-old bladder. Generally, the thicker the mattress, the warmer you'll be.

These are insulated, self-inflating mattresses. Just open up a valve, go away, and a few minutes later it's ready to hop on to (close the valve first). You can add more air pressure if you want by blowing into it - and most likely will need to - but there's definitely no major effort required. To deflate, open the valve back up, "squish" out the air by rolling it up, close the valve, and insert the pad back into the stuff sack - takes only a few minutes.

Not quite a Sealy, but this Thermarest Mattress Pad - Base Camp Series is our biggest and most comfortable cushion where carrying weight is not an issue. It is 2" thick, 77" long & 25" wide making these models warmer, wider, longer and thicker. And when you are sleeping on the ground every little bit of comfort helps.

These pads are more than a pound heavier than our backpacking series and would not be practical for most backpacking trips. These are a great choice if you're car camping and space and weight are a non-issue. Note, there may not be enough room in most 2-person tents for two of these side by side.

If weight and size are an issue, check our the mattress pads in our Standard Series.

The ThermaRest products we carry have earned many awards over the years, and are proven must-haves by campers and backpackers

Note - this item has a high volume-to-weight ratio - that is, it may be light, but it eats up a lot of box space. Shipments including this item often require a bigger box and is subject to a rate surcharge by UPS, so the effective shipping weight calculated at checkout is higher than the actual weight. See the actual product weight above.
